At pofQ I had problems in building seven we had problems with mouse keeping They didn't speak English. Night table was always left pulled out. Never had any towel animals. Didn't keep the room very clean Very disappointed in the mouse keeping I think it's because we stay the last building Number seven because we like the privateness of it.

Just back from a 7 night stay... Thought mouse keeping was great. We always tip daily just cause I hate cleaning up after us and I'm glad someone else is! Got two towel animals. She actually knocked on our door the last day to thank us for the tips!

just a few notes from POR. Mousekeeping has been great so far! We don't have them come in every day because we don't think it is necessary. I called our first day and asked for extra towels, shampoo & conditioner. They showed up in less than an hour with a large bag of S & C and several towels.

We got a towel alligator on day, it was very cute and my boys were surprised.

Food court has been a little crazy between 9:00 pm - 10:30 pm. it was fine this afternoon though, not crowded at all.

If you did not tell them at the time, please write and tell them now. Give all the info about your reservation and room, then give as many facts & details as possible.

Thanks!

I doubt this was due to the remoteness of the building, you should get the same level of service in any building. I assume you reported it to management at the time, as there's not much that can be done about it after the event?

The cleanliness issue is the biggest one, things like lack of towel animals (which are meant to be a nice surprise if you happen to get one) and the housekeeper not speaking English are not really things they can do much about (or don't feel they need to do much about in the latter case).

Three quick questions about a garden view

1. If i reserve a garden view and request alligator bayou will i automatically not get it because there is 4 in my party?

2. Is building 16 and 17 good building yo request for easy access to the food court and main pool?

3. How long does it take roughly to get from these building to the food court and main pool?

Thanks

we stayed in garden view 1613 and couldn't have been happier!! A nice short walk to the food court and ole man....just a few step from the quiet pool also. I don't think you could get too much better without paying for pool view or preferred

Too bad about your room being dirty. That is never acceptable. Someone should be informed about that problem.

But, why does it matter if your mousekeeping didn't speak English? If you have any problems you can always tell the front desk and the message can be given to your mousekeeping.

I also don't believe towel animals are a requirement. On my last trip we never received any, but the room was always tidy and that's all we required.

Hey, are you posting from there yet, or still using Wi-Fi en route?
